WIMBLEDON, SW19
At Syntec, we’re all about creating better spaces, so we’re excited to have completed the first phase on a 2-bed house that makes the most its modest plot. The new-build lies on the site of a former garage on our client’s existing property, just a stone’s throw from the All England Lawn Tennis Club. So far, we’ve demolished the existing garage and excavated to reduce the level of the ground, constructed reinforced concrete foundations, plus created a retaining wall to support. Now we’re ready to start building the ground floor slab and cavity walls – all taking shape nicely, thanks to PM Andre Lourenco and team.  #londonnewbuild #housebuilderslondon http://syntec.uk.com/residential

 

 

HOUSE IN CHISWICK, LONDON W4
Syntec have just completed work on this striking Victorian terrace, opening up the space to create a light and airy 130sqm home. Working with design company Longplain, the project involved a complete remodel, including extensions to side return, loft conversion, new roof, windows and garden makeover. Originally built in 1897, the house now includes three bedrooms and bathrooms, a studio and double reception.

Syntec undertook the complete fit-out: oak flooring was used throughout, with full-height pivot doors and pared-down wall colours for a contemporary open-plan feel. The streamlined kitchen has an industrial flavour with its stainless-steel island and resin floor, while an exposed steel in a rich yellow adds a vibrant designer touch. A job to be proud of by Project Manager Tiernan Bourke and Junior PM Irene Lobo Sanchez! #longplain #refurbishments #refurbishmentchiswick #victorianopenplan #housebuilders http://syntec.uk.com/residential

Building Smarter at Syntec Projects.

Building Smarter at Syntec Projects.

At Syntec, we’re passionate about construction; about building solutions. New projects excite us, and we’re equally committed to each – whether it’s high-end residential or a social housing development.

We also invest in people, recognizing key strengths in our workforce and rewarding their efforts. As a company, we enjoy many social occasions. We know we’re doing something right when many of our staff describe working for us as ‘not really like being at work’ – more like part of a family.

We build good relationships with architects and industry partners too – eager to solve design problems and build better spaces. That’s why we were keen to explore a different method on one of our latest projects, The Woodsman in Feltham, west London. This is a 1,800sqf development in partnership with A2Dominion – a range of 2 to 4-bed accommodation for affordable/intermediate rent, due for completion this autumn. It comprises 4 houses and a 4-storey block of 20 flats, housing up to 82 people.

The contract offered us a perfect opportunity to introduce a different building method – ICF (Insulated Concrete Form). We were already familiar with this product as it’s been used by self-builders in the UK for 40-odd years – the product is now coming into the forefront due to a need to protect the environment. Fundamentally, it’s a system that uses insulation instead of formwork, allowing the builder to lay modular lightweight blocks that are then filled with concrete and reinforcement.

So, it’s a highly insulating and environmentally friendly product that is used as standard on large and small-scale developments in the US and Northern Europe. This type of housing is the norm in these places and the tenants reap the rewards. Not only are their energy bills lower but they enjoy even temperatures with filtered air, so are generally experiencing a better quality of home than their counterparts in the UK.”

It’s not a system that’s commonly used on large developments in the UK, however – and even more rarely in social housing. Yet it’s people most commonly associated with these developments – people with greater needs – that stand to benefit the most from ICF. Combined with triple-glazed windows, solar panels and a heat recovery ventilation system they can expect up to 70% savings on their energy bills.

The advantages for us as builders is that ICF takes only one trade to erect and uses just three materials – Polystyrene, concrete and reinforcement. So the build is incredibly fast and less reliant on skilled labour. There’s less materials waste too, so the building site is cleaner. It’s good news for us, but even better news for householders, who can enjoy ambient temperatures with no draughts, condensation or mould. It’s also incredibly well insulated against outside noise – a reduction of 50db – which becomes a particular advantage when building near busy roads and airports.

Our ethos is simple: we believe there’s no reason why good-quality low-energy homes can’t be available to everyone, not just a privileged few. We really want to make a difference. It’s just changing the mindset, moving away from traditional brick building to a faster, modulated method that, in the long term, is more cost-effective. And with air pollution a hot topic right now – it’s the fourth biggest public health risk in the country after cancer, obesity and cardiovascular disease – this system goes some way towards alleviating the problem by filtering incoming air. We’re also investigating how even finer filters could be used in the heat-recovery ventilation system to block out toxic particulates such as those emitted by diesel fuel.

Now, if social housing of the future could promise cleaner air inside the home than in the polluted streets outside, we could be looking not only at greatly reduced energy bills, but possibly even greater benefits for the nation’s health.

Syntec complete on more new homes for Londoners! Another development on Commercial Road E1.

A Design & Build conversion of commercial units into a 700sqm residential development of nine flats, comprising 1 studio; six 1-bed, and two 2-bed units.

The previous use of the units was commercial, we faced a design challenge when creating the residential units as the site was littered with concrete columns. After careful consideration many of the columns disappeared into walls and cupboards. Our client A2Dominion, who we have partnered on many previous occasions were pleased with the finished results including the specification our high level workmanship.  #NewHomes #NewHomesLondon #CommercialRoadDevelopment #A2Dominion #HouseBuilders #SocialHousing http://syntec.uk.com/housing

Netherhall Gardens: The project has now come to fruition,

We first posted about our project in Netherhall Gardens back in September 2014. The project has now come to fruition, a fabulous residential new build based in London. Syntec  worked with the architects and interior design practice Brinkworth Designon the Netherhall Gardens project. The build included piling and foundations for a basement that extends out past the footprint of the house, with glass capped walkway across to the garden, and picture windows to complement the striking modern interior, the development also included the garden with its pristine raised beds that define the space.

Completion on Project Pine Grove. Syntec were the main contractors on this starkly modernist new build. A large open-plan living space on ground floor enjoys views into the garden through full height picture window and the kitchen area is flooded with natural light from above via the wide span roof lights. The materials palette is neutral, utilitarian and semi-industrial. The open stairs hang off an ‘I’ beam assembly and upstairs the design has included copious amounts of bespoke integrated storage.

The look is raw and industrial, steelmesh, timber and concrete; this is in deliberate contrast to delicate and beautiful food.  Ollie has been heralded as the “culinary messiah” and is soon to open a second restaurant. http://www.syntec.uk.com/projects/leisure/dabbous
